KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia hopes to open an embassy in Palestine even though it may be tough going, said Foreign Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.

He said that while it is impractical to do so given the situation, the move is important to enable Malaysia’s extension of aid to the Palestinians, who have been oppressed by the Tel Aviv regime for decades.

 “When? That is the second question. But the ambition and commitment must be there, and preparations must start.

 “It is the duty and the responsibility of sovereign countries (such as Malaysia) to help the people in countries facing difficult situations and injustices for years, since 1948 (when Israel was formed),” he said to Bernama after attending the recording session of ‘Ruang Bicara’ programme at Wisma Bernama, here, on Monday. – Bernama
